Whole wheat bread has to be really good or else I’m prefer pillow-soft white bread! If I’m going to eat healthy whole wheat bread it must be full of goodness, moist, lots of nuts, fruit and it must have a crusty outside!

Whole wheat bread baked with buttermilk and bicarbonate of soda is good, but to me it is always a tad dry and has a bit of an after taste, so up until now, I have not had much success! No longer, I found the recipe! It takes literally 30 minutes to make and proof and then 45 minutes to bake! One dirty mixing bowl and 1 dirty pan, that’s it! How awesome is that!

To bring more whole grain and wheat products into your diets is a good thing on so many levels, not only does it stabilize sugar levels. but it reduces your risk of heart diseases, strokes, cancer and diabetes. I’m no doctor so if you want to read more about this, please click on this link! What I CAN tell you is that whole wheat bread or pasta tastes better than the white refines counterparts. It definitely gives me more energy and  I eat less when I eat whole grain products! This Moroccan Barley and Roasted Vegetable Salad is a meal all on its own and no meat is needed to fill a hungry tummy! Pack a few of these Oats Cookies in the children’s lunch boxes and they will soon ask for more! Then of course go over the top with this whole wheat and Asparagus risotto and a big fat goose or duck egg and I’ll see you in heaven!

Anyway, back to the whole wheat bread recipe! Tomorrow morning I will be doing an outside broadcast with RSG and many other leading radio stations. I have invited chef Abbas Abrahams , who is the Executive Chef at the Crystal Towers to come and show us how to bake his delicious whole wheat bread! He was quite eager to part with his  recipe and I can truly say, it is the best whole wheat bread I have ever baked! I know you will like it too!

    Shouldn’t sugar, salt, nuts and seeds be measured in grams?

      I think either can work, as long as you stick to one measuring tool
